Valtteri Bottas heads into the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend hoping the track continues to be a good one for his Williams Martini Racing team.

Bottas finished on the podium at Spa back in 2014, and is hopeful of a similar result this weekend, and is looking forward to returning to a track he feels is amongst the best in the world, and one he has had personal success on in multiple categories on his way into Formula 1, including a race victory during his championship winning GP3 Series season back in 2011.

“This is definitely one of my favourite tracks, mainly because of the high speed corners,” admitted Bottas. “It’s extremely enjoyable to drive.

“It’s normally quite a good track for us, the only thing with Belgium is that the weather can be quite unpredictable across the weekend. It’s definitely one of the best circuits in the world so I’m really looking forward to going back.

“We were on the podium there in 2014, so that’s a good memory. I’ve also had quite a bit of success in Belgium with Formula Renault, Formula 3 and GP3 so it’s always one of the best tracks to go to for me.”
